1905-07-27 (112lbs) Jim Kenrick w pts 15 Ike Bradley, Christian Street Gymnastic Club, Liverpool, England. Referee: J. T. Hulls. Made at 112lbs using four-ounce gloves, despite a lack of billing it has to be seen as a defence at the weight for Kenrick. Having made a good start, Kenrick twice found himself on the floor in the fourth round but it had no real effect on him and he was as busy as ever at the bell. Following that Bradley and Kenrick shared the honours for several sessions before the Londoner reasserted his authority towards the end, flashing in jab after jab as his weary opponent plodded along.
